Monday Mantra - August 26th

“My ego is healthy and natural.”

Happy Monday Yogis! This week we expand on our previous weeks intention. We worked on finding our balance between yin and yang, our growth and our self love. This week we discuss this balance in our ego. For each of us this may building our self love, our confidence and help build our ego and light up. And there may be some of us who need to connect with growth, what we need to face, find that humility and find a balance in our ego.

Off your mat, I invite you to have 2 types of conversations. The first one being speaking your mind to it’s true ability with those in your life, Being clear and focusing on communicating your thoughts and feelings as clear as possible. The second one, listen to someone else and instead of interjecting or making it about you and only speaking to reword and reflect the other persons words. Notice which conversation is harder and reflect (maybe journal) accordingly.

On your mat, I invite you to find expression and creativity. Do the weird transitions from one pose to the next, add weird organic movements that don’t make sense. Make your practice a dance to fill your light and balance your ego. Knowing your practice is unique to you and your expression is as unique as each breath we take.

-Namaste, Michi P.
